League: Division I-A Sunset
Head coach: Aaron Griffith, first season
2014 record: 6-13-6 (4-10-2 Sunset, sixth)
Top athletes: MF Logan Buckley (Sr.), F Harut Khachoyan (Sr.), MF Conner Frame (Sr.), D Jack Mathes (Sr.), F Phil Starcher (Jr.), D Brock Hagee (Jr.), D Kyle McKlein (Jr.), GK Tyler Martin (So.)
Outlook: The Crusaders are hoping to show improvement this season after finishing in a tie for sixth in the Sunset League last year.
Khachoyan (7 goals, 6 assists) and Buckley (5 goals, 7 assists) were the team’s top two scorers last year.
“This is a team an program in transition,” Griffith said. “There is some incredible talent, but lacked chemistry in the past. The new focus, determination, leadership and chemistry that has developed already will take this team to new heights.
“This is Faith Lutheran’s last season in Division I-A before moving the entire athletic program to Division I, so there are some old scores to settle before we move up, and the boys are relishing the challenge.”
